The reason it can be confusing is that almost all the words people use to describe sound are actually meant to describe visual effects - the effect of light and (literal) color. For better or for worse we've appropriated them for describing sound, but we don't all use the same translations.

It's a taste.

I think "liquorice stick" describes the clarinet's appearance (a long, black hollow object).
